lyrics

You became extinct two weeks ago
And already everybody seems to know
They all ask me; "Why'd she have to go?"

It makes no sense if you're not there
Makes no sense if you're not there
Makes no sense if you're not there

I could be in fourth or maybe in third
I could be a flock or maybe a herd
Dinosaurs are related to birds

But I don't care if you're not there
I don't care if you're not there
I don't care if you're not there

It could be a Friday night or a Monday morn
They're all the same now that you've gone
I'm thinking less straight than I ever did before

It doesn't matter if you're not there
It doesn't matter if you're not there
It doesn't matter if you're not there

"I think I've been short-changed 25p"
Well don't go expecting my sympathy
There's more important things in life, can't you see?
Can't you see?

But all I see is rain when you're not there
All I see is rain when you're not there
All I see is rain when you're not there

And all it would've taken is you.
